Political Science and Psychology double major (Spring 2016) May Lim has won a fellowship to the Humanity in Action program. Ms. Lim will participate in the Warsaw, Poland  portion of the program this Summer 2018 before attending UC Berkeley Master of Public Policy program in the Autumn.

 From May Lim,

I am so honored and excited to be a recipient of the 2018 Humanity in Action Fellowship! I look forward to spending one month in Warsaw this summer to learn how Poland's society and current policies have been shaped by the discrimination and struggle in their country's past. I am confident that this experience will equip me with tools I can utilize in my own community as an advocate and activist, as well as help prepare me as I enter the Master of Public Policy program at UC Berkeley this fall.

The Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of Fellows to study minority rights and produce original research exploring how and why individuals and societies, past and present, have resisted intolerance and protected democratic values. Separate programs take place for five weeks every summer in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Berlin, Copenhagen, Detroit, Sarajevo, and Warsaw.
